Beautiful Flowers for your Gardens!


                                                                            The earth laughs in flowers.” 
                                                                               ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

It's finally Spring! The one thing I always love about Spring is flowers. I love to plant flowers. They make me happy! So many colors and varieties I feel like I can never have enough. Today I will share the must haves in my garden!

A must have in every southern garden!

Hydrangeas come in white, pinks, blues and purples. I prefer the blue! Growing up my granny had these in her yard. I remember always picking the big blue bouquets and I have loved them ever since!

So pretty they remind me of sunshine!

Daffodils are very easy to grow! You see them everywhere in gardens and out in the wild!

They smell like heaven!

Gardenias grow on a bush about 5 - 6 ft high . They are a great accent to any garden and the fragrance you can smell for miles! Plant close to your window so when you open your windows you have a natural air freshener!

Lots of color!

Growing up we always had these in our yard. They give off a lot of color and have so many blooms! Great to pick and put in a vase on the table!

Such a beautiful mix and very easy to grow!

Wildflower mix is a seed packet I love to buy you don't know what you get until they bloom. Also so easy just throw out the seeds water here and now and watch them grow!

Beautiful flowers with a lovely scent!

Another easy plant to grow and easily multiplies! After the flowers die they leave you with a black seed you can pick off and plant where ever else you would like them! Also you can share them with family and friends!
